Creative Biostructure, a biotechnology company specialized in providing products and services in structural science, offers various thermodynamics analytical services to study the binding mechanism of biomolecules. Recently, Creative Biostructure enhanced its thermal gravimetric analysis services covering food, pharmaceuticals, polymers, as well as other materials.
Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TG or TGA) refers to a thermal analysis technique that measures the relationship between the mass of the sample to be tested and the temperature change under program-controlled temperature, and is used to study the thermal stability and composition of materials. It is worth mentioning that the definition of mass change rather than weight change is based on the fact that under the action of a magnetic field, when ferromagnetic materials reach the Curie point, although there is no mass change, there is apparent weightlessness.
TGA is a commonly used detection method in research and development and quality control. Thermogravimetric analysis is often used in combination with other analysis methods in actual material analysis to conduct comprehensive thermal analysis and analyze materials comprehensively and accurately.
Typical applications of TGA at Creative Biostructure include:
*Determining thermal stability—if a substance (such as ceramic or polymer) is thermally stable, no mass change will be seen.
*The most prevalent visible losses in TGA are oxidative mass losses, which are used to determine oxidative stability. As a result, it is critical to investigate the oxidation resistance of copper alloys.
*Compositional analysis-temperature and weight change of decomposition reactions can allow quantitative composition analysis.
*Determination of the purity of a mineral, inorganic compound, or organic material.
*Measurement of the weight of fiberglass and inorganic fill materials in laminates, plastics, paints and composite materials.
*Determination of water/ carbon content or other residual solvents in a material.
*Analysis of reactions with air, oxygen, or other reactive gases.
*Enhancement of product formulation processes
TGA equipment from Creative Biostructure can be used to ramp temperature from room temperature to 1000°C in various gas atmospheres such as nitrogen, air, or other inert gases. Furthermore, sample weight can range from 1 mg to 150 mg, with a sensitivity of 0.01 mg for weight change.
Protein Thermal Shift Assay, Surface Plasmon Resonance, Isothermal Titration Calorimetry, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Saturation-Transfer Difference and Bio-Layer Interferometry (BLI) Technology are those analytical methods for biophysical characterization of biomolecules available at Creative Biostructure.
